1  How much should I sell these for and other questions in Get Product and Website Opinions by lolitaneko on: August 07, 2008 02:29:04 PM
Hi!  This is my first time posting in this part of craftster and I hope I'm doing this right.  xD;

I'm going to be sharing a table with a friend at a 1 day mini anime convention in less than a month selling accessories and some clothing.  She'll be selling some crafts as well, but I believe she'll be mainly doing art and such...

Anyway, I'm going off topic!  I just made these really cute pins/brooches and they came out pretty good - good enough to add to my inventory to sell.  I don't know how to price them, though.  I was thinking $1.50 and maybe 2.50 for bigger ones but they also take about hour to make and they require a lot of hand work... I might even be making more detailed ones with faces of anime charatures on them.  I know you guys are crafters as well so you could give a big eye-sight into pricing handmade stuff better than my non-crafty friends (not saying they aren't any help, though!!).  I don't want to cheapen my worth, if you know what I mean, but I also want to keep the price reasonable for a convention where younger teenagers with not that much cash will be.


As well as this, I was also thinking about using this idea for tagging my items. http://kickass-peanut.deviantart.com/art/Taggie-Tutorial-84261853
I'm going for the cute look, since our studio name is 'Cute Fruit' and I personally specialize in cute/kawaii and loli-able things.  Do you think this is a good idea?  If I have the free time I might use this to whip up a few for business cards as well as for tagging my items.  I wanna get my name out there, you know! xD

Thanks for your time! <3

Ok, so I got my package from my partner Monday~!  Its pretty awesome. xD

Just as a little background I mentioned that I like cute things and food.  Expecially cute food.  *lol*  So my partner put this awesome little charm for me!

Action shot, but of course.  The berries inside the pie matched my top. Cheesy

She made it so that I can wear it as a necklace and a brooch which was a great idea, seeing as I've been playing with different types of accessories lately.  Thank you very much!!

I've been trying my hardest to get her package done but it seems my medium doesn't want to coorperate with me lately.  ^^;;  This is actually the first time I've gotten nervous about an swap!  >_<  I'll finish everything in time, though like I always do so no need to worry!

Awww!!  I was JUST about to post my pictures.  T_T  I missplaced my camera, like, right after I took them and just found it after a few days.  I have horrible luck.  xD;;

But yeah; I love everything KawaiiHolic gave me!  My favorite part of the package was the Gloomy Bear key chain

It's totally going on my purse right next to my plastic yellow Gloomy that's already residing there.  I recently showed my mom the story behind him so when I got the package and showed my mom it she said 'that's not a Gloomy Bear-- where's the blood?!' I pointed it out to her and she approved.  xD

And here's a kinda-action shot! >_<

I'm not trying to find a way to cordinate the necklace with an outfit now.  It's just so sweet.  :3

Again, thank you - both my partner for the gifts and cupcakeaccessories for putting together this swap!

Just thought I'd share the finished pictures of the turnips

I hope the person they are going to isn't lurking on the craftster boards to see these!!  Although I made them for her last week I still haven't gotten to give it to her.  She's getting the one on the left.

If you play Smash, you'll get the faces; the turnips are Princess' Peach weapons and they have different faces.  This is the stitch face, the strongest one.  I'm suprised I know this much and if this is even right because I haven't played SSBM seriously in my life.  *lol*

5  Mushrooms, stars, and cats FTW -- UPDATED: MOAR TURNIPS. in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by lolitaneko on: February 18, 2008 06:57:55 PM
So it all started last year for halloween when my brother made me help him with his Thugged/iced out Mario Costume.  He bought all this sculpty to make a biiig 1up mushroom and Starman and didn't use all of it so gave it to me.  (I knew that was going to happen.  *lol*)  Now I'm addicted.  >_<

I'm making a Turnip for a friend.  Cheesy

I was sad that I missed the lolcat swap, so I made this long cat charm last night.  xD

So this is what igoesrawr made for me:

With the semi-sexy pose.  XD

I love it - slipped it on over the top I had on as soon as I opened it up.  *lol*  Thank you bunches!

7  How do I do this? (wide fishnetted tank/poncho) in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by lolitaneko on: May 08, 2007 08:18:24 PM
I'm not sure where to even start on this top.  I would say that it's a poncho like top made with a wide fishnet pattern going on and with extra holes on the side so you can wear it as a tank as well.

Well.. thats all I can figure out.  Can anyone help me some how, like give me some patterns that I can piece together to get the same look?

Thanks in advance.  ^_^

8  50's prom dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lolitaneko on: May 06, 2007 08:49:41 PM
This was my prom dress for my senior prom which was on the 21st of last month.  I got lots of compliments  ^_^  I think it fits in the 50's pinup look, I mean, thats what I was going for.  *lol*



These pictures really don't go it any justice.  I haven't gotten the pictures in my camera developed yet so these are from my cousin's cell phone.  They make me look wide when I'm really not  ^^;; I just really wanted to enter this contest to see the results XD

The black is actually pinstipe fabric, the red is a stretch satin.  Originally McCalls's pattern 4444, I took it in so that it showed off my curves (well, the curves that I do have - I'm pretty slim *lol*).  I actually finished it about 15 mins before I left to pick up my date!!

EDIT:  Moar pictures!!

I guess I should also add that I had to recover the clutch with my pinstripe fabric to match and make the hair comb as well.

Goldfish girl sent me yarn a few weeks ago.  I held back from posting to see if I could borrow a better camera to get a better picture of what she sent me but that didn't happen - camera phone pics it is ^_^;;

The purple/blue/teal yarn is some of her homespun -- its so pretty!
